Block the share inheritance

A share "Home" exists on the server pointing to D:\Home Directories. Full Group "Site Managers" has full access to above share. I need a user from Site Managers group be able to see all but one folder in the share. Is there a way to do it? Thanks.

Go into the one folder the user shouldnt have access to.
Add a permission for that user but in the advanced settings, instead of ALLOW full control, make sure you select the DENY full control.

Deny permissions overwrite allow.

If you also use access based enumeration the user won't even see the folder they can't access
